Brazoria County officials say the mother of a teenager has rented a house from Airbnb for her son’s 16th birthday party. They want to know what happened.
MANVEL, Texas – The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to learn more about what happened at a home party where two people were injured last weekend.
BCSO officials said gunfire was heard in a house in the 4400 block of Hickory Ridge Lane in Manvel at around 10:40 p.m. on Saturday.
Authorities said the house was rented through Airbnb. It was said that a mother had rented it for her 16-year-old son’s birthday.
The party was supposed to be just for family and friends, but more people came after the event was posted on social media.
The woman who booked the house will no longer be allowed to book via Airbnb. In the future, the house will not be allowed to book through Airbnb.
“We deleted this list and removed the booking guest from our platform,” Airbnb said.
The calls initially came in as a noise disturbance, but BCSO later said gunshots were heard in the area.
It is unknown what caused the shooting, but two people were injured: one was shot in the leg and the other was beaten with a pistol.
No arrests have been made, but BCSO officials said they hoped a surveillance video of a nearby house could provide them with more information.
The video shows several people walking the streets before at least one person came out and started firing. Many gunshots are heard in the video.
Some people seem to be hiding behind vehicles, while others seem to escape the camera.
